In this review, Doug DeMuro takes a deep dive into the 2024 Aston Martin DB12, a beast of a car with a jaw-dropping 670 horsepower under the hood. Priced at a hefty $350,000, this machine is not for the faint of heart. The DB12 marks a significant upgrade from its predecessor, the DB11, featuring a twin-turbo 4.0L V8 engine that propels it from 0 to 60 in just 3.5 seconds. While the exterior design may not scream radical change, subtle updates like new headlights, Michelin Pilot Sport 5S tires, and a fresh Aston Martin emblem add a touch of modernity to this British masterpiece.

Inside the DB12, Aston Martin has spared no expense in creating a luxurious and technologically advanced cockpit. From the glass-topped key to the intuitive infotainment system, every detail exudes sophistication. The center console boasts a drive mode dial, climate controls, and unique buttons for exhaust and suspension settings, giving drivers full control over their driving experience. While some Mercedes-Benz components can be spotted, the overall interior design remains distinctly Aston Martin, with fine materials and exquisite craftsmanship evident throughout.

Despite the car's performance prowess and opulent interior, practicality takes a hit in the back seats, which are cramped and devoid of amenities. However, the trunk offers a decent amount of storage space, especially when combined with the rear seats folded down. On the exterior, the DB12 showcases Aston Martin branding, regulatory bumperettes, and a striking satin green color option that comes with a hefty $155,000 price tag. Carbon fiber accents further elevate the car's aesthetic appeal, with exterior pieces costing a staggering $23,000 and interior inlays priced at $4,300.
